[ This mail may seem directed mostly at Charles and Nicolas, but I
think it may apply to all of us ]

As you may or may not know, we've had discussions about the patch
format and what it should look like before. As before, we've started
out this time (again) with a proposal for a format. This proposal then
triggers a lot of reactions, many of which point out flaws in the

I have wanted the patch discussion to materialize for a long time now,
so I'm hoping this time will be *it*.

I see a problem with how we've gone about achieving this goal: we've
forgotten to define (or assumed implicit) the use-cases for this patch

So, I'd like us to come up with a number of use-cases, then decide
which ones we're actually going to solve. From that, we can distill
the requirements for the format. From there on we can implement it and
use that as a solid basis to conquer the world. :-)
